And so, as the fog lifted on that
ecstasy champagne hangover, some of the fine young glow-stickers who attended Friday night's Together As One rushed to their laptops this week and posted messages of regret on Craigslist's "Missed Connections" section.
Who could forget ...
I danced with you all night and you have a nice head of brown curls, beautiful blue eyes and you were very tall... I think your name is Roberto and my friend was dancing with your friend, I think his name was Luke. We were at Together As One and you are from Amsterdam! :) Contact me!!
wearing the leather jacket and backwards cap. i liked dancing with u. we made out at midnight and u tasted salty. this is such a long shot but u were cute, and it's a new year!
You salty dog.
And then there's the request of ...
Hey Megan can't find you on FB i dont have your number and you have mine but my phone is broke...i want to see you before you go back to Syracuse i hope i can cause i fell like i know so much about you i just wanna chill again. Hope you actually see this just email me so i can have your phone number and txt or calll you when i get my new charger. peace
And, finally, this sweet sentiment:
My name is Alex, we met on New Years at Together As One shortly after midnight on the left side of the main stage. Danced for a few songs and we split to make sure your friend was ok. You gave me your number but my phone rebooted before I could save it. You were wearing a bright green shirt with a phrase on it. I know this is a long shot but it was clear we had a connection and I thought you were extremely cute and sweet. Contact me if you see this, I'd love to get to know you.
Kids these days are so high-tech. If they would just step back to the time of the pen and napkin (and, perhaps, alcohol and weed), they wouldn't even need Missed Connections.
That said, there is a little app for iPhones called Bump. Just set it to auto. It'll figure it out when you get close.
